Now this is just from the rumor grapevine, but part of the reasons for no Billy & Mickey is that during the "Dead" tour , Billy got bored ( he has said so, his own words), but supposedly, perhaps in response to this , started partying pretty hard etc.
The rumor I heard about Mickey, and this sounds like something out of "Spinal Tap", is that his "old lady" was with them, and a real pain in the ass !
Thus, because of these ,and other reasons , they were not invited on the Furthur run .
Now I have idea how true any of this is, but it the supposed Mickey case, it is pretty funny !
Frankly,Billy sounds better, and happier , with his own band ; but I hope they play all together again , when the mood is right .
